A friend asked me not long ago how life was going at the cabin.
I said “Well, it’s up and down.”
Toaster has been wearing his Super Cat outfit a lot lately. He seems to enjoy the extra layer now that the weather has turned colder.
The colder weather also means more bugs and mice are moving in to the cabin. Stink bugs and ants in the kitchen. Mice in the living room and under the sink. This is especially disconcerting in the kitchen, where it seems the bugs will always win. Everywhere I look, a creature.
I’m cooking a lot more lately. Cooking thru the creatures.
This Mushroom Benedict recipe was really tasty. I tested it for the Washington Post. And then I looked at the nutritional information and realized why it was so yummy. Heck yeah, 56 grams of fat. Definitely a weekend indulgence, but worth every gram.
I also made these butternut squash scones. Mine were just “meh” because I didn’t have any sage and used rosemary instead. Mistake. Sage would’ve been nice. Recipe at Food52.
Wait WHAT? 56 grams of fat? Jeeze I ate like three of those suckers. Not to mention I dispatched all the scones by myself, too.
Super Cat doesn’t even need a cape to be super.
